Cleta Robinson Bassett

March 4, 1932 — May 24, 2024

Cleta Robinson Bassett passed away on May 24, 2024 at her son’s home in Wellsville, Utah. She was born on March 4, 1932 to Alta J. and L. Ray Robinson at her maternal grandparent’s home in Logan, Utah.

At a tender young age, she met Norman Bassett while in high school. They were married in the Logan LDS Temple on December 1, 1948.  After having two children, Norman was called to serve in the Western Canadian Mission for two years. Upon returning they had three more children. 

While residing in Logan, Cleta worked as a medical assistant. Later, the Bassett’s moved to North Ogden.  During this time, Cleta received her high school diploma. She continued to work in the medical field, but later became a tax examiner for the IRS where she made many friends.

Following in her father’s footsteps, Cleta loved Genealogy research. She was called to extract German records and records from the Ellis Island immigrants. She also compiled an amazing book of family histories.

Later in life, she developed and pursued a love for oil painting. Cleta looked forward to the days spent at her talented art teacher’s home, Loretta Gale in Smithfield, Utah. Many of her paintings hang on her family’s walls today.

Prior to Norm’s death and in later years, they built a summer home at Bear Lake. During this process and in the winters, their son Zane and his wife Teresa, opened their home to them. Cleta expressed her gratitude often for the kindness and sweet memories of their family and Ward members.

Cleta was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and held many callings.

Cleta has resided for the passed six years at Legacy Assisted Living in Logan, Utah. The family wishes to extend their thanks to the staff and loved ones she leaves behind.

She is survived by her children: Vicky (Brent) Yeates, Blake (Laurie), Zane (Teresa) and Robert (Debra). Two siblings, Lee (Ralph) Cottrell, El Ray (Carol) and a sister-in-law Carol (Gary) Stauffer.
